Every year, E3 unloads more gaming announcements, trailers, and details than any one human brain could hope to process. To help you find the games you need to pay attention to, IGN’s team of editors – many of whom possess at least one human brain – has been dispatched to the show to take in a superhuman amount of information and highlight the best ones out there by nominating them for one of or more of our Best of E3 Award categories.We’ve now chosen our Game of Show for 2019, which is revealed in the video below! Be sure to check back tomorrow, when we’ll unveil our full list of winners for every category.

Just a reminder: a Best of E3 Award doesn’t necessarily mean a game is going to be amazing – it just means that it demos well in its incomplete state. Think of these as rewards for games that set their sights high and do a good job of making us believe they can hit their lofty goals, creating the enthusiasm and joy of anticipation that fuels so much of this hobby. To see what games actually make good on those promises, make sure to check out our reviews and our Game of the Year Awards every December.

Our categories this year (unless we decide to add more) are as follows:
